have i seen something so robust come forth from the sf mta, with a great deal of hubris, whether seem to have lost the idea of the city family which we seem to have had in this town. to repeat what stephen said, as retailers we are on the frontline; we meet everybody every day and we are part of the appeal i think of this town. we are crazy enough to be in retail , but we like it so much that i think we are going to stick with it and we are fearful that our way of life what we i have a passion for and really end rather abruptly if some of these changes are made. -- having to eliminate employees and through loans from family and friends, i was able to stay in business. still in my residence, we have not received one piece of mail from the sf mta saying anything about these proposals. my business is on a side street. my business has received nothing from the sf mta suggesting any of these proposals. the only way we heard about it was through a chain on the street the one of the smaller merchants associations, through a very late e-mail saying last-minute i want to let everybody know the

opinion has demonstrated a clear disregard for public safety and public health: sf mta submitted plans six months ago and hasn't received the plans or comments for final review. until they receive the plans from usf they're unable to provide plans-- yet the usf website doesn't mention pedestrian safety once. in contrast we-- and in addition the sf mta has done a wonderful job. in addition our committee -- i recently joined the sf transportation committee and focuses on financial constrained scenarios for the plan and evaluated the methodologyand our goal is ensure traffic calming and pedestrian safety is properly addressed as part of san francisco overall transportation plan. unfortunately they don't have a dedicated representative to send to the meetings. following this meeting i will be step across the hall to the rules committee where we are appointing three new members to our committee. some members have resigned and during this past year and mr. rothman which you mentioned and we are recruiting new members as half of the seats are vacant. we recruited other possible appointees
. next we have sf mta to talk about the intersections that we are prioritizing the timeline. how they have been working with the data in order to identify the streets and the intersections we are going to look at, and we also have department of public works here to talk about the intersection improvements and last we have staff from sfmta and capital planning how we fund the efforts that we have put together, so i know i said dph first but first we want an overview of the pedestrian strategies, so from the task force we have tim popdrio who you will present the overview. >> other opening comments from other supervisors. >> i'm sorry. >> supervisor kim anything else? >> no. >> president chiu. >>i would like to make a couple of comments and thank supervisor kim and our colleagues for the renewed attention to this very serious issue. in my first years before they were on the board i and others public officials tried to increase more public attention on this issue but today i really think that the current generation of this board of supervisors including supervisor kim and whose dis
and change to red while they're in the intersection. it happens all the time. i think sf mta and the other agencies need to look into this and why it's happening and the first people i would go is the drivers themselves to ask discreetly. why is this happening? maybe they don't have enough time to complete their runs and they need more time. i know part of the program is addressed in the tep because the bus stops are moved from the far intersection -- from the near intersection into the far intersection and that will help, but in the meantime i would look into finding out why that happens and it happens all the time and it's very dangerous. in addition when you're looking at the streets south of market i would find out what it takes to change some of those streets into two way streets because that would be traffic calming. one way to two way throughout the city in san francisco -- especially south of market. thank you. >> thank you ms. vaughn. >> hi. my name is vida marie. this is ol ga.

to be very informative and we are not going to attack sf mta. i'm sure they have good intentions but we definitely need more discussions. >> as a florist, i know longer accept orders for places downtown because i can't park. it is not worth sending a 50 dollar flower arrangement to someone if i'm going to get a 60 dollar parking ticket and there is no parking at all for me to park so i no longer take clients downtown because i can't delivered to them. with the north beach garage we have been pleading with mta for years to allow that to stay open later because we have such an active nightlife. we have been asking them to allow that to be open for the people who go on broadway. it would alleviate the neighborhood is so congested; the residents can't park on weekends because everybody's looking for a parking space. once again the just have not really considered that and i think that is the type of thing that could be done. i would think fairly easily. here we have an empty garage after a certain hour, that they could charge higher rates if they want, whatever. we've not had any success wi
, middle polk association. we have been meeting with members of the sf mta weekly if not even more. we are planning on seeing a new design on thursday, one that will accommodate hopefully our interests a little more. the tricky part of it is that this coming saturday and the following tuesday are going to be additional open houses where this will be shown to the public and will be voted on. so there will be little time to really flush that out, promote it, etc. it's coming and i think it's good. >> it's important that everything be given due process; it is no good of the group also kind of get the shotgun treatment so it will be important for you to consider it very carefully and as quickly as possible and make your comments none. and i think that i am personally interested. we should be able to see it when you have the information. i live on second street and i am familiar with this process and i familiar with the mta's desire to make san francisco look like an european city, and there is talk about making significant modifications on polk street, we have hotels and businesses requir
-- the concerns with sf mta is that we are going and shopping a proposal, as opposed to going and soliciting input. i want to convey with confidence -- because i think that there is a misunderstanding that is being put out there that we have put together a proposal. it is the role of our office to be doing foster and promote small business and we have to look at the range of small business, what is the current economy, how small businesses develop, and nurture a room for everybody. but i do want to stress that we are very mindful of our neighborhood commercial corridors, the pressures that they feel on a day-to-day basis through parking, through having to repair their sidewalks, many thanks. i want to convey with confidence that that is not forgotten and it will be taking into consideration as we move forward with what we are doing. and then, with regards -- moving on to the disability access, the california commission on disability access asked for presentation and what seven cisco was doing on education and outreach as part of 1186; it mandates that the california commission on disabi

[inaudible] reynolds. i'm a section leader at the sf mta. i'm going to talk through the on going work that has come out of the analysis that was first and the mayor's safety task force. i think we are grateful and excited by the information and sort of data driven analysis of pedestrian crosswalks and bring it into the work as fast as we can get it, and really looking forward to a real prioritize list of projects coming from the pedestrian safety strategy that will allow us to target that even further. this is a map that we have seen. this is the high injury or pedestrian safety corridors. i want to talk about how we use that data in talking -- sort of taking advantage of unique opportunity with the general obligations street bond passed by the voters in 2011. the majority was focused around removing streets but there was money set aside for improvement and important to have a funding stream and leave the streets better than the way we found it so this is in the streets bond that dpw is going to repave the streets on top of the safety network. so
